I am fully student centered! Music is a pleasure, and learning it should be as well. All genres of music deserve respect, and I am pleased to teach any and all. (I do have a special fondness for mixing styles.)
I have been teaching others music since I was in high school. My love for music education comes from the great opportunites I had at a very young age to work with amazing conductors and music educators. Through past experience teaching private lessons, summer camps, group classes at an arts center, and student teaching, I am fully equipped for any situation.
I am extremely passionate about all styles of music and helping others build on their own innate musical abilities! Originally from Rhode Island, I began learning the piano and trombone at a very young age. Throughout high school I was presented with many amazing musical opportunities such as being selected for the All Eastern Honors Band. I attended Ithaca College where I graduated with two Bachelors of Arts degrees in Music Education and Trombone Performance. I currently live in Brooklyn, New York where I teach music and perform regularly with the Brooklyn Wind Symphony, Metropolitan Quintet, and many other funk, reggae, afrobeat, jazz, and rock groups.
Music, and the arts, deserve respect. I show students that there is a fun side and a serious side to music. It's not a competition. It's a puzzle unique to each musician on his or her journey. The reward is priceless.

Don't just take our word for it. We hold the highest possible A+ rating from the nations foremost online reliability source: The BBB. We are proud of this rating and value the message it carries. The BBB has affirmed Musika as a reliable, trustworthy, safe business to work with, and we have the customer feedback to support this. We are continually working to make sure that Musika is a business you can trust.
Background checks available on instructors. Instructor can opt to have a background check on file. You can request to only be connected with teachers that have a check. The choice is yours.
Whether you are an adult starting out, or an advanced player, Musika's network has a trombone teacher for you! Beginner adult students start with us every day to begin working on learning the basics of music theory, technique, and overall musicianship. Our advanced students work to continue their education, and nurture and develop their skills. No matter your level, the teachers in our network work with you to customize your lessons, and assure your progress!
Beginning-level trombones, known also as student models, are relatively cheap and available through many music shops or instrument catalogs. Some music shops can also provide trombone rentals. Something to look for with a used trombone is to be sure that the instrument can be taken apart and put together easily and is relatively free of dents. Your teacher can also help with the selection of an instrument and all the accessories required to keep it in great condition.
It is very important for trombone students to have a basic grasp of music theory from the very beginning of learning the instrument. Students will learn the different slide positions in order to play different notes. The teacher will help develop a correct embouchure, posture, and breathing technique, and also teach the student how to assemble, clean, and care for their trombone.
Trombone lessons are recommend for children 8 and older. The trombone requires a large enough lunch capacity to sustain breath control, embouchure and upper body strength in order to produce a quality tone. Most importantly, students must be able to move through its full range of motion.
In-home trombone lessons are a convenient option for improving your musical skills. In-home lessons are virtually the same in every aspect as lessons taught in a studio. You can let Musika know what days and times work best and a teacher from our network will arrange to teach lessons in your home for the same price as in-studio lessons.

This is the 1st time I've ever taken lessons, and Robert has been a pleasure to work with. I've made quick progress and have enjoyed the process. I'm always listening for those tips that you can't find in a book. I can count on Robert to be strict on the fundamentals and am clear it will make a difference in the long run.

I feel she is a very professional teacher and I have already recommended your company and her to my friends who have children that play musical instruments. My 8 year old son has never been so enthusiastic to play his violin. His skills have improved almost exponentially since we have began lessons with Lauren. Your company has exceeded my expectations and I am very happy to have found it online.

"My daughter is 10 years old and has been taking piano lessons with Mr. Dale J. for almost 4 years now. She is progressing nicely. His kind and gentle way make for a very positive learning experience. Mr. Dale J. is encouraging without being harsh or belittling. He is patient and the ideal instructor for my daughter."
Review by Marcia Hecht
Karleen has really turned it around for me. My previous teacher (not from Musika) had me feeling anxious, upset, and incapable...NOT the desired result! Karleen's method is clear, appropriate for my beginning level, and (best of all) actually lets me achieve some progress! I'm actually looking forward to my lessons now!

Ted S. is teaching clarinet to one of my children, and piano to two others. He is extremely knowledgeable, and very encouraging. His teaching methods are keeping my children enthused about their lessons, and without that, you have nothing. Two of my children were taking piano lesson from another teacher for the past year, and not progressing. Ted has been able to evaluate their skills individually, determine what was missing in their music education, and begin again with some early basics they seem to have missed. I am convinced we are finally moving forward, and am very happy about that. I wish I would have made this change much earlier.

Rahsaan is an extremely talented player who relates really well with my teenagers. He has them both interested in learning. Given Rahsaan's expertise, it's clear that even though they are beginners now, they can learn from him for a long time to come. He's a real nice laid-back guy and both the boys really enjoy their time with him. I've been very impressed and pleased with the experience.

Angela is a phenomenal teacher. She is full of charisma and is a joy to work with. Most of my experience with her has been focused on working in the Alexander Technique and she seems very knowledgeable in this study. I would highly recommend her to any prospective student. I have seen myself improve dramatically in a few short weeks with her guidance (and much practice of course!)

I have been playing the drums for about 5 years and I have to say that Alvaro is very patient. He has opened me up to new styles of music and I can now play a Songo groove! What I liked most was that he was flexible in what I wanted him to teach me and would also bring in new material specifically to what I wanted him to show me. Overall, great patient teacher and would highly recommend! Thanks Alvaro!

Mr. Lou M. is a God-send! With the various needs that our organization requires from our education partners in order to provide enrichment services to our students, Mr. Lou M. has always gone above and beyond in meeting all of those needs. Our students are learning, our caregivers are happy and satisfied, and we couldn't be more pleased with his performance.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
